Its bearing platen is 6 ½” (165 mm) in diameter, through hardened to HRC 55 or greater, plane to .0005” (.02 mm), has scribed concentric circles for specimen centering, and is hard plated for corrosion resistance. The bearing block is closely held in its spherical seat, but is free to tilt in any direction and seat securely under load.

Lower platen is 1" thick and 6.5" in diameter. The platen is hardened to a Rockwell hardness of 55 HRC and is precision ground to maintain planeness within .0005" in any 6.00" direction. The surface is scribed with concentric circles for test specimen centering and electroplated with nickel for wear and rust resistance.
